RSES eLearning - Made possible through the generous support of the R.W. KELLOW CENTER OF LEARNING

R.W. “Bill” Kellow, CM, was a visionary leader of RSES. During his tenure as president of RSES in 1980–1981, he sought to create a school for HVACR service professionals. Following his death in 1992, a generous contribution sparked numerous donations to the RSES Educational Foundation Center of Learning Fund, and the fund was rechristened in his name in honor of his vision and dedication.
Although a school was never built, RSES embraced the concept of “bringing the classroom to the student” by offering seminars at local RSES chapters nationwide. With the launch of RSES eLearning in 2008, Bill’s vision has been expanded further. The classroom can be wherever the student is. HVACR professionals worldwide can now access renowned RSES training anytime, anywhere!
